Kit Kat Review: Golden Citrus Blend

Here is the first of my Kit Kat reviews of the Kit Kat’s I bought while in Japan. I picked one at random, and it was this…

The Golden Citrus Blend Kit Kat.

Golden Citrus Hiroshima Mail Pack

I picked this one up in Hiroshima. It was in one of the special Mail packs that they have. Just like most Kit Kats there, it is a regional flavour, which means it was probably only Hiroshima that I would find it.

Golden Citrus Mini

So, in the mail pack is 5 mini Kit Kats.  Here is the wrapper of the actual mini bar… it is pretty obvious what you are eating. What I can tell is that it is meant to be a blend of orange, lemon and lime.

Golden Goodness

Here is the actual Kit Kat. It is a soft orange colour, not a bright orange. The smell is definitely orange too… while I guess it does smell citrusy, it is the orange that is dominant.


The orange is certainly the main taste too. There are hints of the lemon and lime, but the orange dominates. If it was not called a citrus blend, I would just guess orange probably. The white chocolate base makes the chocolate fairly subtle, so it is not like a darker chocolate jaffa flavour or anything like that. In fact the orange has a bit of a sherbet like buzz to it. Looking into the wafer I couldn’t see any evidence of sherbet or anything like that, but I am guessing there may have been a little bit hiding in there.

I dig this flavour. It is quite distinctive actually. I certainly wouldn’t call this a wacky flavour at all… it is one that the average kit kat eater could get into. Maybe not as strange as I would normally like to eat, but certainly very tasty. With this flavour I think that mini bars would definitely be best… I have a feeling that the citrus and sherbet vibe would be a bit much after a few fingers.

So thanks for a great Kit Kat Hiroshima. A nice blend of different, but really tasty.

Taste: 4/5

Strangeness: 2.5/5

    Sounded like Matt Preston for a moment there… May I just add that white chocolate does not contain any chocolate beans so the kit kat sounds awefully like a sweet and crunchy orange bar 😉

    Certainly sounds better than that Wasabi Kit Kat you gave me!!
